    Hi there,

    In Visual Studio, there is now a Silverlight Business Application template which creates a basic Silverlight application using WCF RIA services to a backend web server. authentication provides the login/authentication functionality.

    Could you provide some pointers on how to integrate your upload component to work within this authentication scenario. The key points to address are:

    1. User needs to login before they can upload a file.
    2. The upload service is protected so only authenticated users can upload a file.

    How would it be possible to achieve #2 seamlessly? If the silverlight app is already authenticated via wcf ria services, how then do we permission the upload to a web service that is separate from the wcf ria services we authenticated against?

    Hi Nic,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    The current release of RadUpload doesn't support Sessions. However you can rely on custom upload parameter to implement / guard an authenticated upload. Such an approach is demonstrated in the Simple authentication with RadUpload article. About uploading to a WCF service, please note currently we support only Http Handlers (ashx generic handler in MSVS).

    We hope this information will help you. However if you have other questions please drop us a line.
